Haha, so these were supposed to be something else entirely. Okay, well, not entirely, but they were supposed to be spritz cookies. Which probably would have gotten me more cookies. Oh well, this way worked out too and they were so good! I was kinda surprised b/c in all honestly, I thought they'd just be eh. Really. Eh.
One of my co-workers made these before the holiday (the correct, spritz way) and she loved them and I still had some apple butter left from Apple Holler, my favorite apple orchard.
So this recipe was found on the Wilton website here and I didn't make any changes to the list of ingredients. The only difference was I rolled them into balls, pressed them into a bowl full of cinnamon sugar and then baked them for about 12-15 min.
They stay pretty fluffy, so I probably should have made them smaller and smooshed them a bit flatter and I would have gotten more out of them, but oh well. they were good and I know what to do the next tme around.
By the way, the reason why I didn't spritz them is b/c my mother broke the cookie press I had and didn't tell me. It was a cordless one from Wilton and I'm not exactly sure what she did, but I think it had something to do when she washed it... Bad mommy. Oh well, it probably would have taken 5 hours to do it that way anyway w/ clean up and all, so this way worked just as well!
These cookies are dense and chewy and cinnamon-y. The cinnamon sugar mix didn't caramelize as much as I would have liked on the top, but that's ok. They were still good and they held their shape well.
